More on the free download comes to us from the band’s website.
The song, produced by Danger Mouse and mixed by Tom Elmhirst, launches a partnership with (RED) and Bank of America to fight AIDS. Every time the track is downloaded, anywhere in the world, a $1 donation will be made to (RED) by Bank of America – up to a total of $2m. All the funds will go to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
‘Invisible’ will be available on iTunes for 24hours from Feb 2nd – ‘Super Bowl Sunday’. A commercial during the Super Bowl will feature the erforming the track, from a forthcoming video directed by Mark Romanek.
Since Bono and Bobby Shriver founded (RED) in 2006, to engage business in the fight against AIDS, it’s generated more than $240 million for the Global Fund. (RED) and its partners – from Bank of America, to Starbucks, Apple and others – are working to end mother-to-child transmission of the deadly HIV virus by 2015, in line with the UN Millennium Development Goals.
The Rolling Stone reported “In a statement, Bono said that Bank of America’s commitment to donate $10 million spurred further donations from the Gates Foundation, SAP and Africa’s Motsepe Family totaling $22 million.
The upcoming Super Bowl spot also lines up with U2’s previously reported plan to announce a new album, which should see release sometime this spring. The band has been recording the follow-up to 2009’s No Line on the Horizon with Danger Mouse at Electric Lady Studios in New York City. U2 will also be Jimmy Fallon’s first musical guest when he debuts as the new host of The Tonight Show on February 17th.”
